Hotshot Performance

A Broadcast Spreader For All Seasons

For a heavy-duty broadcast spreader built for all-season use, look to the Meyer Hotshot. Meyer Hotshots are compact, easy to maneuver and built to handle the extreme conditions of year-round use.

Hotshots are designed to apply a variety of materials including top-dress sand, rock salt and ice melt on snow and ice, as well as limestone and fertilizer. Maximum spread range is from 12-feet to 18-feet, depending on the model.

Controlled Spread

Hotshots are equipped to spread in confined areas, thanks to an easy-to-remove deflector shield that prevents the material from flying too far. All three Hotshot models feature ice-gripping tread pattern tires for enhanced traction in the snow.

A custom-fit, see-through cover keeps the weather out and the material in.

The axle and wheel bearings/bushings provide self-lubrication with excellent wear and load-carrying performance.

Hotshot Ease-of-Use

The Hotshots That Don’t Mind Being Pushed Around
Pushing a fully-loaded spreader over snow and ice or uneven terrain can be frustrating. With the Meyer Hotshot, you’ll glide over the toughest surfaces because Hotshots have pneumatic tires driven by a gear-assisted axle with self-lubricating bearings/bushings. Made out of heavy-duty Nylatron GS impregnated with Teflon,® the greaseless gears are smooth as silk.

The ergonomically friendly T-handle features a convenient push-button shut-off to quickly and easily stop the flow of material. The material flow rate is easily adjusted with an easy-to-read wheel. Hotshot spreader settings correspond to other spreader models (see instructions for quick reference). Meyer also provides guidelines for application settings based on particle size.
